Prison break action flick or inspirational female educational-attainment film? Either way, it’ll probably end up being mostly a romance.
In what looks like Prison Break meets Orange is the New Black, Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, and Merxat star in Republican-era Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀. There are two versions of the plot, both from very official sources, so I’m not sure which one is real, but one that the Baidu Baike and the trailer seem to suggest the series features the female lead hanging out and eventually teaming up with other prisoners to break out of jail after being accused of murder while her friends try to clear her name from the outside.
Now officially known as Under the Power, the upcoming historical romance drama stars Ren Jialun as a broody jinyiwei (secret police officer) and Tan Songyun as an adorable constable who has a crush on him. [Extended Synopsis]
The silent film teaser forBeneath the Brocade Robesdescribes Lu Yi (Ren Jialun) as a shrewd secret police officer / jinyiwei who has formidable martial arts skills. On the other hand, the tomboyish Yuan Jinxia (Tan Songyun) is a poor constable of Liushanmen who is barely capable of protecting herself from bandits.
Lost Love in Times stars Liu Shishi(The Battle at the Dawn) as Feng Qingchen, a sorceress who lives for love. Her love interest is Yuan Ling (William Chan), a prince who decides to avenge his father’s death by rebelling against the current Emperor (Liu Yijun). Qingchen opens a parallel universe to prevent an uprising by seventh prince Yuan Zhan (Xu Haiqiao), and everyone’s memories except hers are wiped clean.
